New Tau Codex Unit Reviews – Hammerhead Gunship (incl. Longstrike)

New Tau Codex Unit Reviews – Hammerhead Gunship (incl. Longstrike)

As I mentioned in the Broadside post. The Hammerhead Gunship is now the only place you can find the iconic S10 AP1 railgun that defined the Tau army for the last couple of editions. The Heavy Support section of the Tau FOC is pretty hotly contested but most people are likely to take a couple of Broadside teams supported by a Hammerhead or Sky Ray. The Sniper Teams simply won’t get a look in I’m afraid. They’re not awful but the other choices are brilliant so they’ll lose out. The Hammerhead Gunship has come down in price quite dramatically, well the railgun variant has at least. The armour profile of 13/12/10 has been retained, as has BS4. Interestingly submunition rounds are now a 5pt upgrade for your railgun but I think they should be always taken as it gives the hammerhead some flexibility. The gun drones can now be swapped for a twin-linked burst cannon (rather than the two burst cannons previously, which doesn't make much difference) or a twin-linked SMS. Both upgrades are free and both put out 4 S5 shots.

New Tau Codex Unit Reviews – Flyers (Sunshark and Razorshark)

New Tau Codex Unit Reviews – Flyers (Sunshark and Razorshark)

This will be the first in a series of posts looking at the units in the new Tau codex. I’m starting off with a double talking about both of the flyers. The reason being that I’ve had three games with the new codex today against various opponents and it’s made me think about what the two different Tau flyer variants have to offer. Now I’m sure, like me, at first glance the fighter seems like the obvious choice right? Well I’m leaning toward the bomber actually so maybe I can convince you as well. First off, the two flyers are both 11/10/10 in terms of armour and are both BS3. These facts alone mean that neither of them are particularly brilliant when compared to some of the other flyers out there but nethertheless they’re our only choice if we want a flyer but don’t want allies. Remember some armies will still struggle even if they have a quad gun.

German Marking Decal from Dom’s Decals

German Marking Decal from Dom’s Decals

My decals ordered from Dom’s decal are finally here. Order the 15mm WW2 German markings and the SS division badge decal for my Dust Tactics miniatures. Intend to use the SS Division badge marking to differentiate the units. The decals were packed in a cardboard protected envelope when shipped, so the decals arrived in a perfect condition. Each sheet of decal was packed in a zipped bag as well, giving another protection. The symbols on the decal were layout in a most optimal design making full use of the decal paper size. I had not problem cutting out the decals and applying them (check out my earlier post on applying decals here ). They worked well just like any other good quality decals.

Dust Tactics Sturmpioniere

Dust Tactics Sturmpioniere

With my upgrades recently for my Dust Tactics Grenderiers and the motivation going, I managed to complete my Dust Tactics Sturmpioniere. I decided to go for the same colour theme with my Grenderiers as a standard uniform theme among the soldiers. Probably when I deal with the other special units or so, then I will have another set of colour scheme but following the same feel. For the upgrades, Victoria Miniatures definitely have been very effective with the ammo pouches and the combat knives. And I am running out of bitz for the pouches and knives. Definitely will be ordering more from Victoria Miniatures. Meantime, gonna start working on the Snipers and the Radio guys, at the same time, few commission project are coming up as well. Stay tuned… cheers!

Tournament List for this weekend

Tournament List for this weekend

I'm going to a 1500 point tournament with my Astral Claws this Saturday, and I've been toying with a few lists. In my opinion 1500 is not the best points level, as there's enough points for frustrating rock/paper/scissor builds to get rolling but not enough points for a balanced army to counter everything. That leads me to approach building my list in a slightly less

Dust Tactic Battle Grenadiers upgrade

Dust Tactic Battle Grenadiers upgrade

Yes… My Dust Tactics Battle Grenadiers finally got their upgrades. I managed to upgrade the combat knives and pouches with Victoria Miniature conversion bitz onto the 6 Dust Tactics Battle Grenadiers miniatures. Like I mentioned in my earlier post, the knives need a little tweaking and filing for the strap at the handle area. The pouches are straight forward with a little issue of clipping like I mentioned in my earlier post . Gluing the knives and pouches were pretty direct application of CA glue with no problem. Once dried, its painting time. I painted the knives with a simple citadel gun-metal and wash. The pouches were painted with old citadel camo green, washed with Agrax Earthshade shade and highlighted with mix of skull white and camo green. Now, my Battle Grenadiers are all ready, ready for assault with reloads ammo, and close combat with blades and knives… Now let me upgrade the rest of my Dust Tactic troops… Cheers!
